As wargs we know freeps will be in tears over RoR and the loss of easy mode. You should expect the class discussions freepside to run the range of "OMG HUNTERS NEED TO BE COMPLETELY REWRITTEN" to "Defilers have to be nerfed, HAVE TO BE, the flies are to OP" to "creeps overall got to much morale, to many new skills, to much of to much!!!" Basically it will be flooded with what they cant do, never mind the multitude of skills and abilities that are over powered and working spectacularly. As creeps, specfically wargs we need to be mindful of the nerf bat. Pounce has been nerfed, soon a lot of the bonus's we picked up with U6 revamp will be on the block as its highly unlikely freep players will exclude nerfing creeps from their class narratives.
– In years gone by the LOTRO team has conducted class “Month Of” events to make changes and improvements to the classes. Heading into 2013, we are looking into player feedback in regards to skills (ones that are great and ones that really aren’t) and overall progression. Advancing through current and future levels should have a real payoff, and the class should feel different as you progress and grow your abilities.
You have the opportunity to improve your class. As Rowan said in the letter above the "class should feel different as you progress and grow your abilities" Wargs should become increasingly powerful once R10 is achieved. I think if someone were to be pounced by say an R12 warg that should be an absolute calamity for the freep player. The morale drop dosent do it justice.
My proposal is:
R12 skill: "Improved Pounce"(racial trait, must be slotted) You leap at your target to distract it interupting actions it was performing. Increased damage when attacking from behind. Interupts inductions. 665 Common Damage, 10% power loss (based on power pool) on target pounced, this can stack (3 wargs = 30%).
Wargs are a burst damage class, however that damage can be negated often by simple one button options for the opposiing side. Creepside is already expirencing a nerf to power reductions with the WL banner nerf, freeps won that battle. It is not unreasonable, based on the nerf to Pounce (increased its CD by 50%) to increase its potency after R12. This would line up perfectly with Rowans profession to desire the classes to "feel different" as you rank. To compensate for the predictable rebuttals that it would be OP, it would require a racial trait eating one slot.
Dont be bashful in your ideas to improve the warg class. We need a lot of work to become a true DPS burst class on par with the freep bubbles, sprints, self heals, stuns, and DPS. If you dont speak up you'll be playing catch up. The freep players are not stupid they see their window to get back to Ez mode at U10. RoR is hard for some of them, dont fall behind in the PvP dev attention race.
